George Jay School Playground- Fernwood

George Jay School on Cook Street has a playground on either side but it's only the small one on Princess Street that actually belongs to the school. It's a run-down rusty affair and I was going to give it a pretty poor review but then I found out that they are desperately trying to raise funds to replace it.

They have currently raised about $10,000 of the $50,000 that they need to replace the playground and they are launching some initiatives to help raise the funds. On Saturday June 13th from 9am to 1.30pm they are holding a garage sale at the school.
George Jay can be found at Cook Street and Princess Street which is one block South of Bay Street on the edge of Fernwood. If you would like to contact them about a fundraising initiative you can call them on 250 385 8623 or email the PAC which is leading the fundraising campaign at
